Planning Commission

As of June 1, 2021, the Montgomery County Planning Commission office is officially reopened to the public from the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. Staff will be available to assist members of the general public who may want to explore 247 development files or our planning library or bring in plans for recording (plans accepted until 3:00 p.m.) or need other services. We still encourage the public to utilize our online resources or call the office number for any assistance that can be facilitated remotely. Some staff will still be working remotely, so an advance call may be more efficient to serving your needs. We thank everyone for their patience during the COVID-19 pandemic and look forward to seeing you again. Montgomery County is requiring all staff and visitors to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
